Increasing the price of petrol is the best way to solve growing traffic and pollution problem. To what extent do you agree or disagree? What other measures do you think might be effective?

It is thought that issues like increasing vehicle congestion and pollution could be solved by hiking the rate of fuels. I disagree with
this
statement as it has only minimal effect on the mentioned problem and a more focused approach has to be done to rectify
this
situation.
Firstly
, I think when petrol or diesel cost increases, it would only reflect on lower-class people.
In other words
,
high socioeconomic group
Suggestion
a high socioeconomic group
would not get affected, so, they would probably continue using their vehicles.
As a result
, the aim to reduce traffic jams or even air contamination could not be brought down.
Secondly
, when fuel prices
goes

go
up, the commuters will suffer
as

at
the expense of travelling in cabs or other common transport facilities would be naturally increased.
For instance
, the bus ticket value is not the same now when we compare with 5 years data. A £5 ticket is now £8.5 due to high cost of petroleum in recent times. To solve
this
issue, the Government has to adapt a varying approach,
such
as replacing or encouraging people to
use
solar-driven motors or engines
instead
of usual motors. One of the advantages of
this
method is, they are cheap and easy to

it can be implemented at a higher scale. Another way is to recommend people

use
public transport facilities for their daily activities. When commuters
use
government operated modes, there will be a large reduction in the number of cars or bikes, ultimately
this
will reduce the carbon dioxide emission.
Finally
, to achieve
this
, the ticket fee has to be moderated, it should be at a reasonable price, so the public
are attracted

to you utilize it. To conclude, I believe that pollution related to vehicles and traffic condition cannot be limited just by increasing the petrol charge,
instead
a more possible strategy has to be followed.
